Politics, Policy and Publics in the United States and United Kingdom: Exploring Linkages and Making Comparisons
Workshop, University of Leicester, Friday 26th May 2023
Supported by the School of History, Politics and International Relations
We invite the submissions of proposals for the presentation of research which addresses topics of relevance to both the US and UK, including relations between the two countries in the international context and comparisons of political phenomena or public policy in the two countries’ domestic contexts. We also welcome research exploring the linkages between the two countries’ societies and peoples. The workshop’s focus concerns the period from World War Two to the present day.
The workshop will involve themed panels for the presentation and discussion of current research (15-20 minutes per presentation). We encourage submissions from scholars working within Politics, International Relations, History and cognate areas. We welcome papers with either a contemporary or historical focus, using different theoretical or conceptual approaches, research methodologies, and source materials. As well as offering a valuable opportunity to engage with research and network with other scholars, we also hope to build on the workshop by exploring the option of a special issue submission to a journal.
The workshop is free to attend and lunch and refreshments will be provided, but space is limited. The workshop will be an in-person event, but we will consider proposals from those who wish to participate remotely. We strongly encourage applications from PhD students and Early Career Scholars. Limited financial support will be available for travel costs for PhD students and Early Career Scholars.

The deadline for proposals is Friday 17th March 2023
